TLRH | Poetry and History in the 1850s: Ann Hawkshaw and John Mitchell Kemble
Friday, 4 December 2020, 4 – 5pm
The Kemble Lecture 2020 will be delivered by Prof. Clare Lees (University of London). The event is sponsored by the School of English and hosted in partnership with Trinity Long Room Hub.
This annual lecture series in honour of John Mitchell Kemble, begun in 2005, invites distinguished scholars to speak on topics associated with Kemble: the history, literature, and archaeology of pre-Norman England, and its later reception, especially in the 19th century. This year we are delighted to welcome Prof. Clare Lees, Professor of Medieval Literature, Director of the Institute of English Studies, and Pro-Dean for National Research Promotion & Facilitation, School of Advanced Study, University of London. Prof. Lees's research interests include early medieval literatures, languages, and cultures of Britain and Ireland, gender and sexuality studies, and histories of place and belief. Her most recent work explores how modern and contemporary poets, writers, and artists engage with early medieval cultures. Recent major publications include The Contemporary Medieval in Practice, with Gillian R. Overing (London: UCL Press, 2019), and The Cambridge History of Early Medieval English Literature, ed. Lees (Cambridge: University of Cambridge Press, 2013; paperback 2016).
